Population dilemma

SA2 Regional population data from ABS to June 2019:

2019 SA4 population

A few  things:

  • Population growth in Cairns slowed further from previous growth rates and has continued to slow now over the most recent years to concerning levels well prior to recent turmoil.
  • Does anyone wonder why congestion on the Captain Cook Highway is an issue?
  • What does it mean when the “official” Labour Force Survey from ABS indicates a massive boom in employment coincident with declines in population growth?

Just asking?
